    Caps Lock?

    Advertisement



    When looking at my list of unread email, I can select a group by holding the Caps button and reolling the trackball. A couple times I've somehow gotten the Caps to lock so I don't have to hold it down. Very convenient, but I can't for the life of me figure out how I did it.....totally by accident. I've perused the Shortcuts and don't see anything about a Caps Lock. Anyone know how to set it to lock?

    i think you can just hold the CAPS button for a period of time and it will stay locked. correct me if i'm wrong though.

    tried to do that in the body of the email and it didnt work for me. what did work was holding down the letter key of choice and it changed from lower to upper.
    I don't know what I said, but I know what I think,
    and, well, I assume it's what I said.

    Re: Caps Lock?

    If anyone is interested, I figured out how I was making my Caps lock in the "on" position and therefore able to select many emails from my list without holding the Caps button down. It isn't pretty, but it works. Hit the Shift key and then hit the Send key. It will take you to the Calls screen, but just back out of it....and ta-da you now are locked. To unlock, hit the Caps button once.

    It could be just mine! I'm just happy that I figured it out because I would lock it accidentally. Something about being slung around in my purse, most likely.

    It isn't just yours...this did work on mine also but I just noticed recently since I upgraded to .96 os I haven't been able to do it. Damn BB I wish they would add a caps lock...you know there are times I wanna yell at someone without hitting the damned shift key for each letter.

    You have to hold the caps key and hit the green send key TWICE to get to the phone screen. Then back out and the caps will be locked on. But, there has to be an easier way.

    I wish, but there is no actual Caps lock shortcut...the method you just described is the only one.
